How Gentle Voices Can Cause “Brain Orgasms”

A video of woman folding towels has garnered 850,000 hits. But it’s not the technique that has people watching, rather her voice. For the sub-million people who have watched the 20-minute video, it’s all about a thing called autonomous sensory meridian response. ASMR is a neurological experience that results in a tingling sensation in the body from listening to soft voices and can cause people to experience “brain orgasms”. Trust me, it’s true. Just 30 seconds into watching the video myself, I felt butterflies in my head.

Before things get weird, I suggest you see for yourself.
